-Yamaha Soavo 3 Speakers (Pair)

Yamaha utilized its vast expertise in music, acoustics and especially as the world's leading manufacturer of musical instruments to develop the ultra-high performance Soavo speakers series. Drawing on the design and construction of the Soavo-1, the Yamaha Soavo-3 offers further refinements for amazingly "Natural Sound" performance. Using a single woofer in the same cabinet that was developed for the Soavo-1, the Yamaha Soavo-3 provides outstanding bass attack and damping, and clearly defined sound.

While based on the original Soavo-1, the Yamaha Soavo-3 drivers (woofer, midrange and tweeter) have been redesigned. Most notably, magnets, cone thickness and surround materials (foam rubber to solid rubber) have been refined to provide sound with greater detail and smoothness in all frequency ranges.

Yamaha's exclusive A-PMD (Advanced Polymer injected Mica Diaphragm) cones are extremely light, rigid and sturdy thanks to the use of a low specific gravity material called PMP (Poly-Methyl-Pentene) that is much lighter than the commonly used polypropylene. It provides very fast response time (sound rise and fall), as well as excellent midrange clarity and bass response. Outstanding internal loss characteristics decrease unwanted resonances to achieve the smooth frequency response that results in natural sounding vocals. Yamaha's original base material also contributes to the beautiful quality of sounds in the vocal range.

The high-performance 3cm (1-1/8") tweeter features a dome made of aluminium, with Yamaha's DC-Diaphragm that integrates the diaphragm and voice coil. It is extremely light yet durable, and transmits large amounts of sound information (highly detailed sound) for a denser sound field. The neodymium magnet is compact yet powerful. You'll enjoy highs that are crisp and clear at all power levels

One of the keys to Soavo's ability to deliver Natural Sound music reproduction is the cabinet design. While maximising sound clarity and imaging, the designers strived to drastically reduce internal standing waves and produce an expansive sound with an exceptional feeling of depth. Their solution was to create a cabinet with non-parallel sides, divide the woofer and midrange sections by a slanted partition, and strengthen the interior with large, vertical ladder type bracing.

Yamaha's excellence in woodworking is used to good advantage in the three-way mitered construction of the cabinet joints. This technique ensures extremely tight joints so the entire cabinet behaves as a single unit, providing tight bass reproduction.

Yamaha's scrupulous attention to the sound of Yamaha Soavo-3 is seen in the design of the network circuit. It uses the highest quality parts, including ICW metallised polypropylene capacitors and high grade air-core coil with carefully selected wire. Furthermore, these parts are connected by directly soldering each one individually, instead of using printed circuit boards. This contributes to the speaker's rich and vivid sound
